Manchester City’s new signing Kyle Walker is desperate to win trophies after admitting his CV lacks silverware.
City paid in excess than £50m for the player which is a world-record fee for a defender, according to Sky Sports News HQ.
Walker was an integral figure for a Spurs team that finished above City the past two Premier League seasons but did not win a trophy in his seven years in north London.
The England full-back admits his main motivation for joining Pep Guardiola’s side is to win titles.
„With the size of the club, we need to go on and pick up silverware, get trophies left, right and centre, and hopefully that can add to my CV because I haven’t won that many things so far in my career,“ he told CityTV.
„Tottenham was a great club, it helped me to get me to where I am now. I’ve learned a lot, especially under the current manager (Mauricio Pochettino), he’s been fantastic with me.
„But sometimes your path isn’t there and you have to move on and what a place to come and take a different path. Just win trophies – that’s all I’m about and all I want to do.
„Hopefully we win titles, that’s what I’ve come here for; the most important thing is actually winning a title.“
The signing takes City’s summer spending beyond the £100m mark after signing Monaco playmaker Bernardo Silva and Benfica goalkeeper Ederson.
City moved quickly to secure the services of Walker after Dani Alves joined Paris Saint-Germain earlier this week.
The City boss had called Walker and his fellow Spurs full-back Danny Rose „the best full-backs in the league“ after playing Tottenham in January, and Guardiola’s latest signing admits there is a mix of excitement and nerves about playing under him.
„What a manager to work under,“ Walker added.
„I’m excited, and a little bit nervous, I’m not going to lie.
„It’s the next chapter in my career where I can go on and learn. I think I’m at a good age now where I’m probably at the peak of my career and I just want to try and be the best player I can be.
„He’s very positive, says I’m going to fit into his style of play really well.“
Walker is expected to travel to America with the rest of City’s squad on Monday for their pre-season tour and he could face his old Tottenham team-mates in Nashville, Tennessee, later this month.Soccer Accumulator Bonus
